      Yoga is Great for allowing energy to flow better in your body. Those who dont know that everything is energy are retarded. When your bodies energy is flowing better, you have a better mental state and are more prone to thankfulness. Doesnt have to be some voodoo witchcraft shit, your body is literally a flesh machines powered by electricity. A defibrillator is all the proof in the world you need
      Your mental state will improve by virtue of your body being more relaxed and happy. If your body is rigid, you will be rigid mentally, if your body is strong physically, youll be strong mentally etc. Now this is not ALWAYS the case, but its a general principle that applies to 99% of people. The word Yoga translates to 'Unity', in essence the entire point of it is to unify mind body and spirit, which it actualyl does if you allow it to. There are certain muscles and areas of my body that I honesly had NO idea I couldnt access. Once I had become aware of those places through yoga, my mind and body became more in tune and it was like a whole new level of consciousness. It sounds all hippy dippy, but Its honestly the truth. Worth a shot, keep an open mind

      that talk is about mood and focus. It's about establishing patterns. "energy" is basically sensation and emotion, and it's fine to think about. Just don't believe it has anything beyond meditative practices. It's not magic.

      At the end of the day, yoga is basically calisthenics mixed with meditation and breathing practice.
      Think of 100 different variations of the plank that targets a huge variety of different muscle groups. It won't help you lift heavier, but it'll help you more easily lift what you can lift.
      It's just as good for fat loss as any other exercise, though.

        >yoga is basically calisthenics
        I dont know about that broham. Calisthenics just seeks to replace gym weight exercises with body weight exercises, and thats about it. Sure there might be some more muscle recruitment than lifting iron at a gym, but yoga literally works deep in your smaller, less known muscles, especially the stabilizers, as most yoga is static exercise poses focusing on balance, rather than just moving weight up and down. I did calisthenics and the end result was basically the same as the gym (eg big awkward bulky muscle, when I'm trying to get more ripped and defined like a surfer). All that being said, I'm sure calisthenics would be a great supplemental routine to yoga though.

        • 3 weeks ago
          Anonymous

          [...]

          Calisthenics meaning bodyweight exercises. Maybe the word is more strength focused and restrained, at least now, by definition?
          But everyone who mentioned calisthenics here probably means that: Bodyweight shit.

          The physical part of "yoga", if you don't introduce elements, is just that. "Calisthenics", bodyweight, whatever.
          You name a pose/movement and you can do that fucking thing without applying any other element from yoga, therefore not being yoga, and you will get that balancing muscles work and whatnot anyways.

            Calisthenics doesnt make me sweat (eg probably burning mad calories) like yoga does though. Once you get good accustomed to Calisthenics it just becomes "a going through the motions" sort of lifting routine just like going to the gym.

      I think it's possible but would be extremely time consuming if you count on it alone. Looped and chained routines is basically cardio when you know them by heart. Some twisted postures are quite hard on specific muscle groups but generally require you already built balance and strength to achieve them.

      I started to practice in my teens so I could be biased but imo best way to learn is weekly lessons by a good teacher for a year. Then continue with other teachers and find out how they build their lessons. Or take instructor lessons if you want. But you have to have someone making sure you do it right at some point. I doubt a noob's lonely internet practice would be any good.

        Most people report being absolutely drenched in sweat after just a few minutes of yoga though. Can't say personally I've experienced the same with just calisthenics, and even less so with gym weights. That being said, I'm sure you're right the best way to learn would be with an actual teacher at a class than on the internet, but I don't want to be the lone, out of shape (from a yoga perspective) dude being judged as a creeper for being in a class full of flexible chicks though lol. Maybe I could ease into yoga through the internet to get some basics down before joining a real class?

          Totally depends on the yoga flavor. Once the cryptic little muscles and deep bigger ones are used to effort it becomes less tiring. Also, I'd advise against lonely practice because injuries and going too hard on yourself are very easy. Every class I've been to was friendly and helpful. Just don't be that awkward guy in the back there just mire those asses.

    Yoga was originally conceived as a way to train the mind to endure discomfort while meditating on the path to nirvana. The modern woman has co-opted it into an easy exercise form that they can feel smarmy-good about, and in practice all it amounts to now is training to endure getting fucked in odd positions.

    Take the tai-chi pill. It's a martial art that confers all the same health benefits as yoga and can be used for self defense if you learn it from the right school.

            idk for the past 2 years or so I've had anxiety manifest in really odd ways that I'm not going to get into. But after 2 months of consistent hot yoga (3-5 times a week, alongside lifting) it's pretty much all gone. Literally like a switch was flipped, it's actually really amazing. You should try it, for the most part your not going to be talking to anyone anyways

    Yoga is just the Indian systemized practice for the development of flexibility that was also developed by other cultures such as British callisthenics or Chinese Tai Chi.

        Yes, do hot yoga. I burn about 400 calories per hour, and can get my heart rate to 80-90% of max nearing the end for a short while. I'm sure youll lose more if your a fatty. But also do some sort of lifting

        Yoga is a great supplement, and if you don't care about not being able to do what others are doing, by all means dive right in. It'll help with carrying your heavy weight and relieve stress on your body.
        I wouldn't suggest it for being the primary driver of weight loss, though. Do more traditional cardio until you get to a more moderate weight, then include yoga. Yoga is great, but you might not be able to get the full impact of many stretches because of your fat being in the way.
        But it doesn't hurt to try it out.

        Thanks guys, ill try it for a bit but stick to basic poses for now(mostly for stretching), after a bit more research seems I need to lose a bit more weight to do a lot of the poses properly, and so its easier to hold myself up

          You can still go into a class, and a good instructor will give you alternative poses that you can do as a beginner/heavy person. I'd say it's worth it just to get some good habits Yoga gives you, but it shouldn't be your primary exercise. I'd suggest going in weekly to beginner classes and learning what you can so you can apply those stretches while at home and help develop a better posture in general.

    used to be a boxer. now that im 36 hot yoga is all i do. as a marijuana/kratom addict its the perfect lifehack to help manage my round-the-clock substance abuse and keeps me entirely off alcohol. im 36 but i look to be in my mid-20s. my dad and brother both have MS and can barely walk. meanwhile i have beast legs from doing so much yoga. all the back pain i used to have is gone. all the neck pain is gone too. my body is a well-oiled machine. i stand upright. my hunchback-curve is completely gone i used to have tight shoulders but hot yoga helped me target the tight spots until i learned to rotate my spine correctly. you start with the lumber, the upper body is along for the ride. instead of tensing up your shoulders, you relax your shoulders and simply rotate the base of the spine while breathing out. this was such a revelation.
    its the only thing that fucking works. take up this lifehack and you'll be able to get by easier. i come home from hot yoga and i dont worry about anything. just pass out. survive clown world. death will embrace me soon enough

    Good for flexibility and for your joints which is important if you are lifting a long time. Good as a compliment to meditation to balance ur chi as well, if you get good you can elevate your kundalini and attain a higher form of consciousness to transcend the limits of this mortal reality, you'll need to meditate as well. Also u meet hot milfs

    >t. do yoga first thing in the morning before cardio and gym in afternoon

    Vague redpill on yoga as I have little time:

    >Everything you think you know of yoga isn't yoga
    >The primary sources for yoga are the Yoga Upanishads, the Darshana of Patanjali, the Hatha Yoga pradipika, Ghereanda Samhita, Shiva Samhita, etc. Much Sanskrit knowledge is lost
    >In short, Yoga in it's true form is a series of lifestyle guidelines to transcend the everyday condition, gain mastery of oneself, and attatin a higher, spiritual state by achieving a "total surrender to god."
    >Control of the physical and vital energy (prana) is part of this, but nothing like anyone here understands.
    >again in short, the physical component of yoga (Hatha Yoga) as you here would have it is made up of sitting postures and breath control. (The others are abstinences, observences [meditation, though, not as anyone here knows it], withdrawal and concentration.
    >The main physical pose, generally, is the Siddha-asana.
    >Red-pill:
    >The best modern book on the subject is Yogananda's Autobiography of a Yogi. (As a curious aside, Charlie Manson considered Yogananda his guru in the 50s and went to retreats by the organization he started before his death.)
    >What you'll read in Yogananda is nothing like the nonsense yoga turned into in the 60s with hollywood stars jetting off to cheesey hash smoking retreats, transcendental meditation, and women today strking poses meant to give other women the middle finger and speaking of 'centering their chakras'.
    >My opinion is that 'yoga' was subverted by US intelligence in the 60s much like they created/promoted abstract-expressionism
    >Mahesh and the heavily promoted yogi's such as Iyengar are merely frauds used to mislead/sanitize the practice for the gullible
    >Yoga as it is known today, postures, are simply health and fitness exercises that evolved from fitness methods in British India that were primarily influenced by Swedish physical culturists and have no relation to the religious practices that evolved originally in the Himalayas

      What about QiGong though? Indians passed down QiGong to the Chinese apparently back in the day.

    Some yoga exercises are useful for things like reversing the effects of hunching over a computer all day. I think you will find a lot of athletic people do some of the yoga moves. Just take from it what you need though. I don't think it is good to go all in on yoga like some women do.

      Is doing a plank only good for "flexibility and relaxation", idiot? Because yoga is basically the equivalent of doing a plank for every muscle in your body. It's a workout, not a stretch, though it might stretch some muscles in each position, it is also working out and burning other muscles somewhere else simultaneously.
